    The Lucy - 10.30.2021

    My husband Daniel and I got married at The Lucy on October 30, 2021, and our expecations were significantly exceeded. From the time we signed the dotted line to the time we left the reception, the entire process was absolutley seamless, stressfree, and enjoyable. A HUGE shoutout to our amazing coordinator, Jimmy DiGuglielmo. He was so organized and calm throughout the entire planning process and at the reception. Our guests were blown away by the service, the food, the venue...you name it, they were raving about it! He made our reception everything we could have dreamed of and more! I know I can speak on behalf of my parents when we say how amazing you and the Cescaphe group were to work with! We would absolutley recommend them to our friends and family who are planning their wedding in Philadelphia.

    Hire cescaphe for your wedding!

    My husband and I got married at the Cescaphe Ballroom Nov 5, 2021 and special thanks to Bella and Andrew for making our wedding an absolute dream. It was everything we could have hoped for. Both Bella and Andrew were one step ahead all night, catering to our every need. With Cescaphe I did not have to worry about a single thing. Everything was taken care of and for that I am so thankful because we got to enjoy the entire day without any stress. The details, the professionalism, the food (THE FOOD!!), the venues and vendors -everything was PERFECT. Do not hesitate to book Cescaphe for your wedding. You will not regret it! Also would like to shout out Cescaphe's concierge services and associated vendors: Beautiful Blooms (florist), Capelli and Trucco (hair and MUA), Cescaphe Trolley (transportation) who all were a huge part in making our day magical! Thank you again!

    The Cescaphe Lucy

    When you ask your daughter if her wedding reception was everything she wanted, and she responds "and more" you know the Lucy was flawless in every way. From Jimmy, our event manager, to the staff, to the beautiful venue, every attention to detail was handled with the utmost care and professionalism. I would recommend the Cescaphe Lucy to anyone!
